Hosiery Recycling

 

WE WANT TO BE PART OF THE TRANSFORMATION OF THE FASHION INDUSTRY AND OFFER A BETTER AND MORE CONTROLLED OPTION TO RECYCLE YOUR OLD TIGHTS. BE PART OF THE CHANGE AND GET A -10% OFF YOUR UPCOMING TIGHTS PURCHASE.

 

 

HOW IT WILL BE RECYCLED

WE WANT TO CLOSE THE LOOP FROM OUR SIDE AS MUCH IT IS POSSIBLE AND BE ABLE TO RECYCLE THE MATERIALS. AS WE DO  NOT PRODUSE, WE SENT THE OLD HOSIERY TO THE SWEDISH STOCKINGS, WHO WILL TRANSFORM THE OLD HOSIERY INTO NEW. 

IN ORDER TO MAKE THAT POSSIBLE THEY NEED TO BE ABLE TO SEPARATE THE FIBRE, THE POLYAMIDE FROM THE ELASTANE. AT THIS TIME, TECHNOLOGY ISN´T AVAILABLE YET. HOWEVER, THEY HAVE AN INTERIM SOLUTION.

SWEDISH STOCKINGS COLLECT AND GRIND DOWN OLD PANTYHOSE TO BE USED AS FILLER MATERIAL IN FIBREGLASS TANKS. THESE TANKS ARE USED IN THE COMMERCIAL INDUSTRY TO SEPARATE GREASE FROM WATER, SUCH AS AT GAS STATIONS, AT RESTAURANTS, ETC. THEY ARE EXTREMELY HARDWEARING, LASTING DECADES, AND CAN CONTAIN YOUR OLD PANTYHOSE IN THEM.

GLAMOROUS - NO

SUSTAINABLE  - YES

AS LONG AS THE OLD TIGHTS DOES NOT END UP IN A LANDFILL.
